The 23-year-old male and 19-year-old female arranged to meet the suspect near the corner of Portage Street and E. Stockbridge Avenue around 7p.m. Monday, Nov. 28.

They were sitting in a car when the suspect approached and robbed them at gunpoint before fleeing.

Using security footage from a nearby business and a description of the teen, police were able to find the suspect a short time later.
